SURVIVING THE ABORIGINAL OUTBACK
Official Survivor II Tours
Spend your holidays with the Aborigines!
Want to experience the Survivor Outback without the backstabbing? Want to get up close and personal with nature, but not have to catch it for dinner? Think Tribal Council sounds fun but only if there’s no risk of being sent home?
Then book your spot on the official Survivor II Outback Experience.
The producers of Survivor II and the owners of Goshen Station, the location for the TV series, officially sanction the outback-Australian tours. This tour is your only opportunity to visit the sites used by the Kucha and Ogakor tribes and explore the ancient countryside made famous in the series.
This eight-day adventure tour includes biking, canoeing and hiking the Savanna lands surrounding the mighty Herbert River of Tropical North Queensland.
Participants experience many of the challenges faced by Survivor II contestants, with ample time to make new friends, explore, relax and enjoy the unique environment. The tour guides have been selected for their environmental skills and in-depth knowledge of the region, the history and culture of the traditional Aboriginal owners, and the struggles of the first European settlers.

Mountain Biking to Blencoe Falls
Canoeing the Herbert River
